Tall Tales by Karen Day

Meg's family has moved a lot because of her father's drinking. Meg arrives in her town longing to find a real friend, someone she can talk to and write stories with. When she and Grace join forces to write a book, she's thrilled that she has finally found someone who likes her for who she is, who trusts her and confides in her.

But she can't tell Grace about her father. Even though she hates to lie, Meg can't resist telling tall tales about her family and her life to Grace and other kids.

For Meg, friendship turns out to be the key to telling the truth, and also to a better life for her family.

This book is amazing with lovely characters and unique plot I see no reason why not to read! Perfect for grade school kids mostly 3rd 4th and 5th. Got a child that needs to read? Toss this there way. Its the perfect fit. I read thisa long time ago and I still love it.

I enjoyed reading this book. I would read it again and again just for fun. This is a very special book and one of my favorites. Everyone should get to read it at least once because it has friendship and family and even some sadness but i loved every single bit of it. It is very suspensful and fun to read. I couldn't let go of it! :)
